December 2001: Pen and Colored Pencils.
Caption: Ivy and Bailey have their first meeting.
Explanation: The first day they meet, Bailey and Ivy manage to bond quite nicely. They’ve just returned from their first flight together; very soon after this, Ivy invites Bailey to live at her house.
IVY TRIVIA: Bailey thought Ivy was her mother when they first met. Later, she convinced herself that she and Ivy were sisters and secretly believed it until proof otherwise showed up in the fourth book. This disillusionment bothered her for a while, but also she was secretly relieved, having begun to be embarrassed of Ivy being so weird. She never mentions this to anyone.
